Timber

Here at ROKA, we have devised innovative blasting technology that provides the perfect solution for anyone that requires timber cleaning or restoration. Unlike other methods on the market, we are able to clean timber at any phase of the building process, irrespective of whether you require the restoration of anything from traditional timber facades to architectural timber beams, or the trades are yet to have been completed.

With our cutting edge technology and extensive experience, you can be confident of an exceptional service, irrespective of the scope or complexity of your project. If you go for a cheap service provided by unskilled operators who do not have the experience or knowledge to carry out the work effectively and safely, you not only run the risk of damage to the timber but the surroundings too, and this can cause huge knock-on problems. Instead, you need a company you can trust, and we’re going to tell you why ROKA is the best business for the job while also providing you with details on what you can expect from our service.

There are many different reasons why you may require our ROKA blasting service for timber applications, with a lot of people requesting our services for the laborious task of removing layers of stains and polyurethane surface coatings, such as varnish from blinds, shutters, window frames and door frames. There are also those that have simply felt the effects of the volatile weather here in the UK. This has been the cause of many blisters and cracks in products, as it causes the substrate to expand and contract, while timber facades also frequently discolour because of the impact of UV rays. Therefore, the weather can have an adverse impact on both the quality and appearance of your property, yet this is something we can fix.

This merely scratches the surface of the type of services we provide. We have worked for a vast number of clients in London who have required timber cleaning and restoration, including working on delicate antique restorations, traditional timber facades and cladding, modern timber facades and cladding, barn conversions and architectural timber beams. Therefore, you can be confident that we have the skill and experience to deliver on your project.

So, what does our service entail? Well, we employ the use of a micro-air-abrasion system with a helical vortex nozzle. Not only is this extremely effective, but it is an eco-friendly approach as well as a healthy and safe one. A lot of other companies use acid based products and aggressive chemicals when attempting to remove coatings and stains from timber. Not only is this extremely harmful to the environment, but it can pose a substantial Health & Safety risk. This is something you do not need to worry about when you choose our service.

A lot of people experience trouble when it comes to the removal of paint from softwood window frames and doors when they use other services. This is because the approaches that are used damage the wood fibres. However, our method conserves the wood, as we will test the material, and if it is suitable we will remove thick paint coatings via the use of paint stripping. We do this by adjusting the air/blasting media flow through the use of a gun with a helical vortex nozzle. One of our experienced and trained operatives will ensure the pre-treatment of the wood is handled in a quick and efficient manner so that your project is delivered on time and on budget.

If you have any questions about this service or you would like to take advantage of what ROKA has to offer, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
